The past few days I've been helping Kate with wedding plans. I found her wedding invitations which Donnacha photo-shopped to suit Kate and Eric. They are really cool, I can't wait to show them to you! I'm getting more and more excited about it, the next thing is to order her dress and then mine!
So I'm finally sharing with you the photos from Friday and Saturday of Oxegen. Donnacha Siobhán and I took these photos, let me know what you think!

The first few photos of the mud and clouds and general grossness pretty much sum up what Oxegen has become. The only other time I've been was five years ago where Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Strokes, The Who, James Brown and Death Cab For Cutie played. There is a completely different, much younger crowd that goes to Oxegen now and it's basically a 4 day drinking session (It now starts on a Thursday). Some of the bands we interviewed and the bands we saw live made little comments about it being like the Apocalypse and that they were only doing it for the money and experience which to me is the only reason to do it because any of the bands we saw had the smallest audiences in attendance which is very disappointing for them and a very bad representation of Irish gigs.
I wasn't there on Friday but Saturday the weather was really nice for most of the day which we spent in the Press/VIP area until we went to the Red Bull dance tent (a little bit of hell on earth in my opinion) to do an interview which we didn't end up getting. The highlight of Saturday was seeing Eels who actually played 5 years ago too but I wasn't as into them then. They were amazing and had the best style (see above).
I'll be telling you all about Sunday in tomorrow's post!
Hope you're having a great week so far. I missed this, even though it was only a week.
Here's our interviews/acoustic sessions from Saturday, if you get a chance to watch any of them let me know what you think! (Can you guess who's hands those are at the start of the videos, again?)
